Design Building Renamed Julian T. White Hall
Julian T. White Hall, formerly the Design Building, has been renamed to honor Julian T. White, the second Black licensed architect in the state of Louisiana. White was also LSU’s first Black professor who began teaching in LSU’s Architecture Department in 1971. In 2020, the LSU College of Art & Design unveiled a three-story mural of White in the atrium of the Design Building,
which will now be named in his honor.
“Naming the building after Professor White honors the momentous impact he had on so many students, and all of LSU,” said Alkis Tsolakis,
dean of the College of Art & Design.

Volunteer as a Reading Friend!
Our ongoing partnership with Highland Elementary
is a unique and special relationship!
We are looking for volunteers willing to share time as a Reading Friend.
For 30-45 minutes each week, you can invest in the life of an elementary-aged student by reading with them. Organized through Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS), this established program has made a difference in the lives of students all over the city-parish... simply by spending intentional time sitting with a child to encourage and read together.
Can you be a Reading Friend?
Contact the church office and we'll help you get started!
